Tangoe Unveils BYOD Advisory Service
New Service Offering Advises Global Enterprises on Developing and Implementing
BYOD Strategies to Better Meet an Organization’s Goals
ORANGE, Conn. -- October 15, 2013
Tangoe, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNGO), a leading global provider of Communications
Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and related services, today announced the
availability of its Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Advisory Service. As part of
Tangoe’s Mobile Lifecycle Advisory Service offerings, the BYOD Advisory
Service provides global enterprises access to the company’s team of experts
and intellectual property to help guide customers through the assessment,
execution and transition phases of implementing a BYOD model.
“With BYOD there are more questions than answers. Everyone is talking about it
but the motivation to adopt this model is unique to every business – for some,
it is financial while others may be looking to increase user productivity or
employee satisfaction,” said Garrett Long, Senior VP of Strategic Management,
Tangoe. “One common theme among all enterprises is that BYOD has been
identified as a solution to one of these problems and the job is then
deflected to someone else for execution. The goal of our BYOD Advisory Service
is to help this team identify the root problem, determine what it means for
the organization, evaluate all existing ideas and models, ensure all impacts
are calculated and then implement the right strategy for that company.”
As stated in Gartner’s Implementing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Program*,
“Enterprise mobility is driven by the need for seamless, yet secure, access to
corporate information anytime, anywhere and from any device. Implementing a
BYOD program is a complex undertaking that will require the efforts of many
individuals inside and outside the IT department.”
BYOD is a complex topic especially for global organizations that must consider
regional behaviors that could potentially impact a BYOD model. Tangoe’s BYOD
Advisory Service is designed to provide an objective assessment of how BYOD
could impact an organization, develop a BYOD strategy and policy that factor
in the unique challenges of the organization and execute the transition
process. This is completed through the following two phases:
Phase 1: Assessment
When assessing a company that is looking to migrate to a BYOD model, Tangoe
evaluates the following areas:
*Financial Implications - Determine the cost savings the enterprise is
looking to achieve and then present costs on a bell curve for further
*Adoption - Present to business stakeholders, HR and legal to understand
the effect this model will have on the company culture and to understand
*Policy - Work with the enterprise to establish a best-in-class BYOD policy
for their employee base. Policies typically include acceptable devices and
requirements so that users know of any rule-based permissions.
Phase II: Execution
Should the first phase demonstrate that the transition to a BYOD model will be
beneficial for the enterprise, Tangoe outlines the scope of the project based
on the information attained from Phase I and assists with the company’s
Tangoe’s BYOD Advisory Service is a vital component of the comprehensive suite
of Managed Mobility Solutions (MMS) for global enterprises. To learn more
